This year, the Beacon Staff would Hke to dedicate the book to three men who helped make the College 
of The Albemarle what it is today. We hope this expresses our gratitude for their struggle to provide 
this area with a community college. 




Nathaniel Elton Aydlett — A consistently staunch supporter of College of the Albemarle from its earliest roots to 
the present, N. Elton Aydlett has a long history of association with North Carolina's community colleges. In 1 960, 
while serving as State Senator, he chaired the Community College Committee of the State Board of Higher 
Education when College of The Albemarle was chartered. Twenty years later, Mr. Aydlett was appointed as a 
charter member of the newly-formed State Board of Community Colleges. This long-term, unending commitment 
to the community college concept is primary among the reasons for Mr. Aydlett's selection as a recipient of the 
College of The Albemarle Twenty-fifty Anniversary Award. 

A native of Currituck County, Mr. Aydlett earned his law degree from the University of North Carolina. He 
associated with several general law practices and, in 1 928, was named Clerk of the Superior Court and Juvenile 
Judge for Pasquotank County, positions he held until 1 946. Mr. Aydlett assisted in the development of a number 
of planned communities and businesses, including Southern Shores, Southgate Mall, and Seventeen South 
Garment Company. In addition, he has served as a director of First Union National Bank since 1 963, is a former 
trusteeof East Carolina University, and was mayor of Elizabeth City from 1951 through 1955. Aside from his 
efforts toward the establishment of College of The Albemarle, Mr. Aydlett's accomplishments in the State Senate 
included the statewide expansion of UNC Television. 

A member of Blackwell Memorial Baptist Church, Mr. Aydlett was married to the late Pantha Houser Aydlett. 
They have one child, Mrs. Robert D. (Patricia) Aldridge, and two grandchildren, Robin A. Harris and Jeffrey A. 
Aldridge. 




Charles Marion Gordon — Chairman of the first board of trustees at College of The Albemarle, Charles M. 
Gordon was a driving force in the establishment of the college. While a director of the Elizabeth City Chamber of 
Commerce, Mr. Gordon chaired the chamber Education Committee from 1 959 to 1 960, when the idea of a 
community college in Elizabeth City became a reality. He served as trustees' chairman until 1965. It is for his 
personal commitment and unending persistence toward the establishment of College of The Albemarle that 
Charles M. Gordon has been chosen as a recipient of the College of The Albermarle Twenty-fifth Anniversary 
Award. 

Born in Beaufort, North Carolina, Mr. Gordon attended Elizabeth City High School and High Point College. He 
served in the United States Navy during World War II on a South Pacific destroyer and, in 1 960, was voted Man 
ofthe Year by the local chapter of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. In 1947, he and his aunt, Mrs. Josie Thorson, 
established Gordon Sheet Metal, a company which continues to thrive in the business community. 

Mr. Gordon serves as chairman ofthe Board of Deacons of First Baptist Church and is married to Lucy Slaters 
Gordon. His children include a son, Charles F. M. Gordon; stepdaughters, Leland Jane and Lucy H. McGrath; and 
grandchildren, Kristin and William Charles Gordon. 




Vernon Grant James — The only charter member ofthe College of The Albermarle Board of Trustees who 
continues to serve in that capacity, Vernon G. James is currently the vice chairman ofthe board. He has worked 
faithfully on behalf of the college since its inception, both locally and at the state level. A native of Pasquotank 
County, he has helped to assure adequate educational opportunities for the citizens ofthe Albemarle area. Because 
of his long association with the college and his support of education for the local citizenry, Vernon G. James has 
been selected as a recipient ofthe College of The Albemarle Twenty-fifth Anniversary Award. 

Mr. James, who attended Weeksville High School and North Carolina State University, is retired from his 
positionsaspresident and manager of James Brothers, Inc., a family farm and produce supply business. In 1945, 
he was elected by the people ofthe First District to the North Carolina House of Representatives and has served 
nine terms in that capacity. He chairs the House Agriculture Committee and serves as vice chairman for the 
commissions and, earlier this year, was the recipient ofthe Governor's Award from the North Carolina 
Agribusiness Council for Distinguished Service to Agribusiness. A life-long member of Salem Baptist Church, Mr. 
James is married to Thelma L. James. His children include John Thomas James and Vernon Grant James, Jr., 
both deceased.

10 STUDENT LIFE 



Chow Time! 




The Student Senate 
sponsored a cookout on 
the back lawn of the 
campus in September. 
Hamburgers and hot 
dogs were enjoyed by 
all. A Student/Faculty 
Softball game was also 
played, with the faculty 
winning. The students 
want a rematch!

12 STUDENT LIFE 



This Fall the Student Senate sponsored 
a cookout for students and faculty. 
Everyone took advantage of this oppor- 
tunity by playing a Student/Faculty soft- 
ball game. The teachers won after a 
fierce battle, and also won the rematch 
staged later. The cookout/softball game 
was a big success and proved to be a 
source of entertainment for everyone 
that participated. 




"Grudge Match" 



The food at the Senate Cookout must have been 
outstanding, because these two faculty members 
seem to be savoring every last bite. 





Nancy White belts a good one during the losing 
struggle between students and faculty. 



(Above) Head Chef and Student Senate President, 
a heat-worn David Brickhouse, prepares to cook 
some more food for the long lines of hungry 
people. 



Billy Ball's expression of intense concentra- 
tion, and Jerry Leete's crouched stance show 
how each team took the event seriously, but 
when it was over, they all parted pals. 



STUDENT LIFE 13 



Thanks to the excellent job done by the COA ac- 
tivities director; student life at COA is interesting as 
well as fun. 





15 



COA students take leave of the many fun activities 
and show they have a serious side as well.

The Student Government of the 

College of the Albemarle is the driving 

force behind the majority of all 

activities at the school. The members of 

the Student Senate represent the entire 

student body at C.O.A. and are elected 

by their peers. The Sophomore officers 

are elected during the Spring of their 

Freshman year at C.O.A. and Freshman 

officers are chosen the following Fall. 

Each club sends a representative to all 

Student Senate meetings to act as a 

liaison between the two organizations. 

The student Senate is responsible for 

booking all concerts and appearances by 

various performers and bands, ranging 

in style from blue-grass to pop 40 rock, 

as well as organizing all of the dances 

throughout the year. The Student 

Senate has a history of sponsoring many 

charity events and fundraisers, and this 

year it sponsored the raffle of a truck, 

donated by Perry Toyota, for Skills Inc., 

an organization that teaches 

handicapped individuals to maximize 

their potential, and the Mail Call for 

servicemen overseas during the 

Christmas holidays, and blood drives 

during the school year, as well as Toys 

for Tots, which gives gifts to needy 

children. The Senate also sends 

delegates to 3 N4C-Conferences each 

year, where they have the opportunity 

to participate in leadership seminars 

and interact with the representatives 

from the other community colleges in 

North Carolina. Not only does the 

Student Senate sponsor events for other 

non-profit organizations, but it holds 

various events through the year for the 

entertainment of the faculty and 

students, such as the popular September 

Cookout/Faculty-Student Softball 

Game, and the December Talent-Show 

that showcased new and old talent alike. 

The Student Senate participates in 

community affairs such as entering a car 

in the Homecoming Parade at E.C.S.U., 

and sponscrring a float which won 

second place in the Christmas Parade. 

The Student Senate is a group of hard 

working individuals who are dedicated 

to the students, the school, and this 

community to make it a good place to 

live and learn.

through different literary forms. The 
members are involved in such 
activities as sponsoring and attending 
literary workshops and sponsoring

Short Stories, and Drama. The Club 
also publishes the "ARGUS" which

Art Club 



The Art Club was formed to provide 
an outlet for artistically inclined 
students. Under the direction of Mr. 
Ben Hill the Art Club has sponsored 
Student Art Exhibits and various 
other fund raisers to support a newly 
established Art Club Scholarship. 
This will be awarded for the first time 
to a deserving student in the Fall of 
1986. The purpose of the Art Club is 
to promote the fine arts and inspire a 
spark of cultural interest among 
students. We hope that students re- 
tain their interest and continue to 
make the Art Club the fun and active 
group that it is.

C.O.A.'s drama club, the Satyrs, with Lucy 
Vaughn directing, are performing three 
plays this year. Work began in September 
on Pippin, a musical about the eldest son 
of Charlemahnc and his unsuccessful 
search for fulfillment in life. Countless 
hours of hard work and preparation went 
into both two hour performances, and 
despite obstacles such as delayed scripts 
and flooding, the show went on to be a big 
success. Prior to this printing, preparation 
was already being made for a February 
production of Arthur Miller's Death of a 
Salesman, as well as plans for a play with a 
mostly female cast, are in the making for 
late April or early May. 

To be a Satyr one need only to have been 
involved with a Satyr's play in some 
capacity whether on stage or behind the 
scenes. Because membership is not 
restricted to only CO. A. students, many 
members of the Community have also 
been Satyrs. 

The history of the Satyrs is one of 
excellence in theatre. Its members won 
numerous drama awards. All in the past, 
the Satyrs, with the help of Lucy Vaughn, 
have given the public quality productions 
and have carried on a tradition of 
excellence that promises to prevail in 
future productions as well.

WHEN THE CONVBISATION 
TURNS TO UFE INSURANCE? 




It's a puzzling situation. 
Obviously people recognize the importance of life 
insurance— virtually everyone has it. But very few 
people want to talk about it— until they meet a life 
insurance professional and hear about The Challenger^' 
from Life oif Virginia. 

The Challenger is a universal life insurance 
policy. Premiums are flexible. Coverage is adjustable. 
Your accumulated cash value over $1,000 earns 
competitive, current interest rates. The Challenger has 
so many features that it even comes with a Buyer's
